Obsessed with . . .

Felt! No, not the fuzzy arts and crafts material . . . the 1980s British band. I recently bought their "Stains on a Decade" album (on Cherry Red) and can't get enough of it. Their songs are simultaneously poppy and melancholic. Their lyrics are amazing, and their songs make you want to sing along. I'd never heard of them, so I am extremely grateful for the staff at Other for suggesting it for me. I loved "Stains on a Decade" so much, I went back to Other Music and picked up two more Felt reissues: "Forever Breathes the Lonely Word" and "The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories." Both are excellent. Makes for some super-sweet wintertime headphone listening.
